The primary purpose of the Great Wall of China was always to protect the Chinese Empire from the Mongolians and other invaders.

Most of the current Great Wall we see today was built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and is approximately 6000km long.

Although a useful deterrent against raids, at several points throughout its history the Great Wall failed to stop enemies, including in 1644 when the Manchu Qing marched through the gates of Shanhai Pass and replaced the most ardent of the wall-building dynasties, the Ming, as rulers of China.

Trump's wall would be little more than a  monument to ignorance, stupidity, bigotry, and racism with his name on it....

Perhaps the headstone on his grave should be some kind of replica of his 'great wall'  with the following inscription:

Humpty Trumpty has his great wall.

His biggest wish and his political fall.

All of his forces and all of his ken

couldn't make HIS America

be great again.

Since President Know-Nothing has never studied history, or anything else, he has apparently never heard of the hundreds of walled cities of the ancient world ... or the Great Wall of China ... or the Antonin Wall and Hadrian's Wall in England, but hell, he should at least have heard of the Berlin Wall. And if 2 Corinthians Don had ever read the Bible, he'd at least have heard of Jericho and it's tumbling walls.

Every president seems to have his own peculiar fancy.  bUSh Jr's was war waging more than two-thousand billion dollars to execute and untold billion$ in destruction and maiming.  The projected cost of DiJiT's presidential fancy, of his southern border wall, is seventy billion$ and it doesn't even involve steath fighter jets or navy missiles killing civilians.
